I have a silly question that I hope no one will mind my asking: what is the system running on this time? JWM or OpenBox?

Luci still defaults to starting with Openbox.......I just immediately switch to JWM as in the above screenshot.

That's what I figured, but I wanted to know for sure. I am so madly in love with OpenBox I don't want to give it up.
Thank you James!

The main input device shorted out with who knows what cross linked and Puppy still works.
I am impressed!


I have run Puppy when all my Hard disks have failed and USB booting was not available, using multisession . . .
Brave Pup . . . wants to run . . . Smile

In 250, will download latest if I can,

In jwm the OOolight SFS displays so far up the screen you can not access the maximise and other buttons from the mouse - this is not the case with openbox, where it is OK

Is it possible to have a chat button much like the browse button
which gives the option of a variety of software - xchat, pidgin, ayttm, web based?

It looks like Openssl 1.0.0 won't work. Sylpheed wants 0.9.8 but will accept a symlink, but gftp also wants it and will not accept a symlink. The best (and simplest) solution is to go back to 0.9.8 in luci-252. 0.9.8 is what Natty is using so it is state of the art, even if it doesn't have the nice 1.0.

James C found the edubuntu desktop. etc., but I doubt we could run that. I had assumed there would be many applications that were included.

I'm using openssl-1.0.0d-w-20110209 without problems; needed it for TOR, but sylpheed and gftp is working.

Long,long ago when Edubuntu was a separate release I seem to remember everything being available in individual packages....now that it's just an addon to Ubuntu it appears they just combined everything.

Upgraded from 250 to 251 - simples, went well
Choose the simple desktop icon arrangement that James C has depicted earlier in this thread - oh I like that . . . Smile
Aer, Argo gold and other icon sets are a separate download? Their buttons appear [without icons] in the 'desktop icon switcher' selector but they are not included?

Did a fast frugal install on the NTFS where I have my other Puppies too and installed FF and tested to do streaming video on our local TV station.
Then looked at some pictures of Cats and Dogs trying to look cute and played an old cover of Rock'nRoll from 1960.

Looks okay from here.

I use nosmp with this one. should I test without it? I am on Acer D250 and Lupu usually don't boot consistently if I exclude the nosmp.

what does the nosmp take away? Is it better to do without it and only use if it is the only way to boot?


No criticism and not a request or demand either Smile but what is it about Fluppy and Snow Puppy that allow them to use the RFKILL and Threaded something and a third thing that allow these puppies to reliably boot while Lupu need an added nosmp for to boot? Why can not Lupu have the RFKILL and threaded thing too? Just me trying to understand.

Using the fontwizard.pet in 251
from Lucid news
http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/LupuNews/index2.html

turning all the options on
it seems to make my fonts flicker when viewed close up
does it offer improvements for LCD users or eyestrain?

hi playdaze, in lupu 520 when copying files, the 'quiet' option did not work. Forcing you to click multiple times to overwrite stuff. Is it possible to fix this in luci251?

cheers 666philb

Subject description: Virtual Desktops
 

Changing virtual desktops in JWM fails in Luci-251.

For JWM-500, the Desktops tag in jwmrc.personal has changed to a new width/height format, such as:
Code:
<Desktops width="x" height="y"/>


However, jwmrc.personal in Luci-251 has the old Desktops tag, which JWM-500 does not recognize:
Code:
<Desktops count="x"/>


Also, the corresponding configuration files in /usr/local/jwmconfig2/ should be updated, similar to 01micko’s modifications in Spup.
